Why CMS?

We seek out innovative technologies that deliver cost-effective solutions, enabling our
trade-only customers to succeed.

  • Trusted

    We are a trusted advisor that goes further for your business. We know our technology, products, markets, and trends. With joined-up thinking across teams and locations, we always come together as one to exceed your expectations.

  • Innovative

    We have a passion for taking carefully selected emerging vendors to market. It’s why we continue to move into new areas, follow emerging trends and deliver more of what our resellers and vendors want.

  • Service

    We deliver on quality of service by being more efficient, more human, and more consistent. That means you communicate with the same helpful and responsive experts each time, so they get to know you and your business through and through.

  • Focused

    We are not too big, but we’re not too niche either. We offer a wide range of specialisms to suit every customer. That way, we can give you our full attention and focus on your individual needs.

  • Technical

    We understand that you need to work with a distributor you can trust, which is why we’ve spent over 30 years developing our specialisms. We can offer you the very best technical knowledge at every stage.

  • Collaborative

    We are a collaborative partner that acts as an extension of your business. Our experienced team is here to help, whether you want us to deal with end-users directly, provide marketing support, collaborate at events or follow up leads to close sales.

  • Tailored

    We are all about you, so we tailor our approach to ensure you have the answers you need, so you can make the choice you want. Whether it’s managing business or configuring products for maximum return, we go one step further every time.

  • Influential

    We have a powerful voice based on the lasting relationships we’ve developed over more than 30 years. It’s a strength that puts us in a good position with our resellers and enables us to build brands up – not let them down

  • Dedicated

    We have our own in-house marketing agency that we can dedicate to you – producing targeted content and events, facilitating healthy business relationships between vendors and resellers and following up on leads to close sales.

  • Agile

    We are more agile than most, with the freedom to act quickly, adapt to your changing needs and offer a truly personal service. We always take the initiative and act upon it, while embracing every challenge that comes our way.
